Re-architect Creo WGM CAD Document based on soft-type/sub-type rather than attribute called document type or document sub-type. This shall allow to tightly integrate OOTB functionalities such as ACL, Policies, OIR, Numbering Scheme, Lifecycle/Workflows with object type. This shall provide more generic solution.
Currently Creo Formats, Assembly, Part etc. are persisted as EPMDocument type with authoring app as Creo/Pro. Attribute called "document type" differentiates between each of the formats. So, all Creo Formats/Assebly/Part are driven by same Lifecycle/OIR and ACL etc. Usually Formats are managed under Library where they're rarely changed. So if we want to put in policy not to be able to create/check-in Formats in a Product level, that's not possible using ACL/Policy (without customization).
Making WGM CAD Type as sub-type of EPMDocument shall allow to apply various business rules/policies more flexibly without customization.

This sounds more like a product idea than a discussion. If you have maintenance then you might want to go ahead and create a new idea:
Found it. Here's the link in case other are looking for it: Re-architect Workgroup CAD Document type based on soft-type/sub-type
By the way, don't forget to vote on your own idea.
Hi, you are able to create for each "document type" a CAD-Document subtype. Have a look at the blog post
I have successfully setup the system to have for each type (Part, Assembly, Drawing,...) their own OIR, ACL etc.
